let it go we have built very close ties with the communication workers before september seventeenth we were already supporting the farm workers and they responded by supporting us we went to their last rally at the headquarters they marched back to the park with us and some of them slept there they're going to be in a tough struggle that's why we're getting this relationship with labor labor scenes is relieved they are i never expected when i first started contacting unions that the response would be so enthusiastic but the labor movement has been kicked around now for quite a while and they have to fight and they see people fighting and they see their fighting the same enemy and they see the reaching out this movement has shown such an eagerness to reach out to the mainstream of the american public and the unions represent the organized part of that the focus on the one percent and the first time in an american movement i don't even think in the thirty's that the communist
party did this in their mass work i don't even think they identify the enemy as the ruling class mr speaker. mr vice president. members of congress. distinguished guests and fellow americans last month i went to andrews air force base and welcome home some of our last troops to serve in iraq. together we offered a final proud salute. to the colors under which more than a million of our fellow citizens bought. and several thousand gave their lives we gather tonight knowing that this generation of heroes has made the united states safer and more respected around the world thank you thank you you thank.
that you two want to get a standing ovation from both democrats and republicans just keep them alive that beats the bottom line of the military industrial complex which just so happens to have invented itself in every congressional district in the country nobody really believes that the undisputed greatest beyer of violence in the world actually makes us safer and more respected i mean come on that kind of attitude is not going to earn anyone any nobel peace prizes or anything distinguish members of the norwegian nobel committee it's citizens of america. and citizens of the world. i receive this honor with deep gratitude and great humility george orwell would have had a hard time coming up with this are we really this delusional you see the more honest we are with ourselves about exactly what our foreign policy is the better chance we have to stop some of the truly horrific conditions it visits upon many of the people of the world so say it with me the us foreign policy is
a blowback inducing homicidal bull in a cultural religious and geo political china shop chain. there was handed. down. to the family. sitting. around. the world. it was not right. that on such a trip i served in iraq in two thousand and four in two thousand and six i was in the second bad. enough allusion november of two thousand and four as a human being and as a person who has a heart i can't lie to myself anybody else and say that we had a reason to be there that there's a reason for the million iraqis that died in the five thousand to said we say we're the greatest country in the world but we go into you know people in their country
but we don't stop genocide in africa we don't help people that we can help that would be the greatest country in the world if we can save a million people instead of killing them and people if you're not convinced our foreign policy is morally bankrupt perhaps we should talk about money next mayors in the united states have need one point four trillion dollars for total war spending in iraq and afghanistan since two thousand and one never wondered what one point four trillion dollars would buy well it could be the annual energy costs for every household in america five years but i hear you saying that would not do very much to decrease our dependence on foreign oil there are enough. one point four trillion dollars could convert every home in america to one hundred percent solar energy. over or it could convert every home in america to one hundred percent wind energy nothing times over for groceries for everyone the country free for two years or provide scholarships to every college student in america and award
them a fifty five hundred dollar grant seven times over the more turn all volunteer firefighters into full time employees and pay them a full salary for twenty three years or pay the full time salaries of every public school teacher for the next six years instead we took one point four trillion dollars pay a small black ops team to hunt track and kill osama bin laden oh we even had money left over in the budget to decimate two countries launch hostilities resulting in over one million innocent civilians dead and counting ask yourself how many orphans are going to bed with clenched fists tonight in afghanistan or iraq who grow up willing to fly a plane into the building and how many trillions are we prepared to spend on avenging that you. can do every. go to school and not just go to school but excel in school work
really really hard and i graduated and really had to feeling a lot of the time very consciously in my head that. i might as well. you know i mean. was there reason for me to be in debt good evening of all the time bombs on the american economy set to explode with dire consequences this is a big one staggering debt from student loans everyone is told a college education is a way to get ahead college tuitions though keep going up so does the borrowing and we just hit an awful milestone our nation's combined student loan debt is now have . one trillion dollars that averages out to twenty four thousand per student it's now larger than credit card debt in this country and it comes just as an entire generation is just starting out. i have to.
oh it just. has so many bright. young people might be on a global stage with affordable education. and it is a challenge and justice that there is in fact the whole student loan debt credit card debt when congress raises loan limits schools respond to those increased loan limits by raising tuition because they think that students can afford to pay more because they're actually allowed more money nobody really has the option to expect to get a comfortable. not go to college we don't have an unskilled workforce anymore we are for the workforce that we have right now it's socially irresponsible not to go to school because the entire workforce is predicated on higher education i think our education system hasn't caught up to our economy and that's one of the problems and that that's where this problem is coming and that's why people are speaking up that's why that why i'm here there are no bankruptcy protections for any student
loans this is the only one and all of us history that you can't ever default on you can ever just charge this with a car see the idea of do you debtors union is based on a labor union model and what they did effectively when our economy was very different when there was so-called unskilled labor they negotiated with the factories for better working conditions so that they could go back to work just that same way you do you debtors union you could renegotiate a better contractor arrangement with our lenders so that we can repay our loans is employing an autonomous strategy of refusal so you were fused to do something you're saying no to something in favor of making things better. how do. you.
break code like this you know it's really about who we believe and the sooner we come to know the will just. so whether it's you know. the tar sands i think that the size of florida is from an alberta i was really interested in the tar sands protests this summer because to see thousand plus people getting arrested like that willfully is pretty amazing friend of mine. the style of your terror years is tar sands oil is not have to go in order to get tarzan out you have to destroy it and so i think that you know find some of the pipeline but what happens after that you know another standoff with big oil i think so i think so i don't think it's the environment going to magically go itself
because we stop the pipeline and the thing about the pipeline and one reason that makes this so urgent is that that nasa scientist james hansen the brokaw warrior actually a few decades back or whatever says the piper i mean it will be game over. game over means out in front on the inhabitable area. well. it's technology innovation all the least of melamine spun around russia we've got the future covered. motion to be soon which brightened. soon from finest impressions.
who threw stones on t.v. don't come. to least be told language such. as programs and documentaries in arabic it's all here on all t.v. reporting from the world talks busts of a p.r. people interviews intriguing stories for you. been trying. to find out more visit our big teeth dog call. of the six america votes for its next president. who takes the wheel as the u.s. drives into the future and get the news the mainstream misses without up close election coverage of the u.s. election up close on and off the dotcom. judges waiting
vaults fifteen goods. two counts. forty kilograms of rice one thousand flatbreads. and a live. but why is the bride in a bad mood. now to tell the group the want. of the role is a done deal. culture is that so much of a given to each musician a person trying to hide from the marquesas democracy promotion the export of a universal set of values or if a means to change and control the global water twenty years out.
come down and actually get. their narrative there's. a good dose of not a rarity here so stupid criticism so it's not the done and we want people to be able to use the if it's going to take time. we can't force or not that is good. because we see a better world. to the big. it is organization the second that any american dreams . were created. i.
put in a bit you know. i've never seen that so i don't miss it at the end you know they say all the same stuff and then they sit around somebody who has issues and problems and they talk about you know how badly that person has done and what they're going to do if they don't change their behavior and for us we're dealing with folks who have a serious addiction to corporate money but. now. cheney said them to get off and on their own even on that in the smoking a crack. crack you can be very easily addictive somebody who was cool six years ago snuck up on a crack rock this is not on the occupy movement has become a conduit to venue for talking about this corruption and so folks that move to amend that are really in my mind i. said in the bar for the critique that corporations are not persons property not speech constitutional rights are for
people over eight hundred fifty six and dred scott the same supreme court so that people are property dred scott affirm slavery in two thousand and ten the supreme court said property is people killed decisions i didn't say that was was was was funny for some from the bottom telling. you of the wow. combat was the culmination not individuals organisations coming together with a secular purpose to get to where they come to kill him and that to make it clear cut his person they do not have been hearing a mailing about the old. money it is not political
speak thanks to it and how he's come it in top post doc things must be abolished we cannot overturn going to punish united and still allow wealthy individuals just didn't have enough money and it was the way. i. feel the reason that he was kind of puzzled ha it was all my. money last round of the power monopolies have you noticed people are like this double our society should we
get swedish like let's use the excuse that someone's got to put for race in the wind as it's not going to be all this big you know built on the backs of morris both those were all forgotten the stage will all come out by mother's day as the people out there they go to the big. well the hearing is the most you see on the bull run they call his carriage and drops like that so much better just remember it because the race is. just. somebody just. because. the odds are that was. because. people are realizing that very least that the way our economic system currently
runs not democratic it's not beneficial to the vast majority of people and till we have some kind of economic democracy where in the past majority of people in their communities and in their workplaces have more decisions over what these corporations do if we want to have corporations and all then political democracy. yeah and then you look at the military budget the upsurge in the military budget the united states spends as much as the whole world combined at a time when our infrastructure is literally a deep level grade according the american society of civil engineers we get a deed in there these days threatens the future of our economy our infrastructure is going to work as if you face of those two issues which are you know just wrong and unfair the one percent in the military industrial complex suddenly your solutions to all the issues i mean there's money to invest in the new resisting the economy you know certainly there's money to reformers whom so that we see energy as
you can turn roads into solar panels that's where possible we like. our money ran on it. right at the. right. place and it was this target like the rest. easier by the red streak. we were right. here. and. they say that the occupy movements major victory to date is that we have changed the conversation and people are now debating issues such as western equality at
this point i think we can all agree there is no debate there is inequity when it comes to well period full stop and it is growing and the super rich are not super rich because of some force of nature like summer morphing into fall or heat always going to the polls they are super rich as a result of their active participation and or their willingness to be accessories to you. criminally rig the homicidal force of a system what the occupy movement has done and why people armed with nothing more than an idea are being suppressed often violently is to acknowledge that most all of the issues are connected into war activists who are through healthcare reform advocates or housing or labor rights advocates will bank the reform advocates you name it are now all shining a light on the root cause of inequity you see our foreign policy does in fact limit our options when it comes to health care reform a shareholder capitalism one that demands growth every quarter is directly contributing to the assault on collective bargaining issues the american dream
itself the way it is understood by many as a mistress rags to riches anyone could be a millionaire greed is good grab the most toys before you die each rose should be euthanized for the greater good and the birth of a new american dream based on equity sustainability and the general welfare of the people should be brought into being and by people i mean people not corporations i was out here during the good in foreign occupation. it was a martin luther king day and two thousand people total strangers were out of each other on the streets were having conversations across class and race lines and all the sudden we felt oh. well so this new better you can't there's no messiah going to get elected by this system and deliver hope and change we can believe in so how will the occupy movement that has wisely stayed away from promoting political parties or individual politicians navigate the minefield of the
potentially co-opting force that is the presidential election cycle now this year is just going to be nuts we've never seen this much money spent on a political process in the history of the world. and this comes at a time for a movement that is. terminally i go to. this mad influx of money and politics so it's going to be a really scary contrast and a challenge of this movement is to create a counter narrative is to show that the justice of its cause is more interesting than anything these candidates can put on television i mentioned at the beginning that this movie is an invitation for you to join the occupy movement but there are no membership dues no papers to sign all that is required is the willingness to see the world as it is and decide that you are going to be part of the solution occupy less of an organization and more of an organism
a living breathing multi and force that refuses to find mishka will be pushed into a corner this organism is still a baby and the narrative that will be telling him years to come is yours to write what's your alternative that isn't exactly do you. do you blame him coming to your t.v. still. believed to be. until the. book. just. thankfully the new senate better myself so when they say why occupy what will your answer the first time in decades people were really discussing does the world have to be this way and how can we bring a better world and i think this historical lesson about kids who would like to read
our. secret laboratory tim curry was able to build a new most sophisticated robot which unfortunately doesn't give a darn about anything tim's mission to teach creation why you should care about humans in. this is why you should care. only on the dot com. you know sometimes you see a story and it seems so you think you understand it and then you glimpse something else you hear or see some other part of it and realized everything you thought you don't know i'm tom harkin welcome to the big picture. just give me can i speak we use here let me finish please my son died in a gun don't agree you don't agree with him my son ethan is in the arena i don't
